Were you looking for information about Anxiety? Axiety is a common misspelling of anxiety.
Anxiety disorders are illnesses that can fill people's lives with overwhelming worry and fear. Examples include panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and agoraphobia.
While each anxiety disorder has its own distinct features, they all have the common theme of excessive, irrational fear and dread. Often, the anxiety that a person feels is generally chronic, unremitting, and can grow progressively worse. Fortunately, treatments can be effective at any age. In most cases, a combination of talk therapy and medications is effective.
